Council Redistricting

On Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2021, the Denton City Council approved the redistricting of the City’s single-member Council districts. The new district boundaries are based on 2020 census data and will impact Denton City Council elections only. An estimated 26,368 total persons, or 18,724 registered voters, are now are included in a new voting district and have new representation on the City Council.

Every 10 years, following the results of the US Census, the City of Denton has the opportunity to review its City Council districts to determine if population changes would require district lines to be redrawn. In October 2021, the City Council directed staff to move forward with redistricting, and a Public Input Period began on Oct. 27 and ended Dec. 7.

During this time, the public was able to provide comment and submit full redistricting proposals on the City’s website, with a public hearing during the Dec. 7, 2021 City Council meeting. Citizens were also available to provide comment at the Dec. 14, 2021 City Council meeting.
